|3-D Rendezvous with Interacting Galaxies Arp 273|
This image of rose-shaped galaxy pair Arp 273 was released in celebration of Hubble's 21st anniversary. Curious what it might look like to a passing space traveler? This special 3-D video takes you in close to the large spiral and its smaller companion galaxy.Arp 273 lies in the constellation Andromeda and is roughly 300 million light-years away from Earth. It's made up of a large spiral galaxy, known as UGC 1810, with a disk that is distorted into a rose-like shape by the gravitational pull of ...

*Description*: Glittering stars. Distorted galaxies. A cluster of more than 100,000 stars. The celestial objects in this six-panel photograph are just a sampling of the more than 300,000 stars and the thousands of distant galaxies seen in the image of a small region of the Andromeda galaxy's halo, a spherical cloud of stars around the galaxy. The image was taken with the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard NASA's Hubble Space Telescope...
